May Basic Training-Heat Embossed Resist

Summer is well on its way and in honor of all the May flowers those April showers brought I am sharing a fun resist technique using heat embossing.

Michele here with a super easy background technique.
Here is what you will need:

I used watercolor paper.
Stamp your image with embossing ink and sprinkle with clear embossing powder.  I used Viva Las VegaStamps! high gloss embossing powder.  Now heat it up.
Spray your paper with as many colors as you would like.  I used four Colorations from Art Anthology.
Wipe the color off where is has beaded on the stamped image.  This  one is a VLVS! stamp from a new release,  Wildflower Silhouette
Move the pooling color around and dry with a heat gun.
The Coloration colors used were Waimea Bay, Timeless, Salted Carmel and Guacamole.

You will be able to see the finished card I made with this background over at Viva Las VegaStamps! on May 21.  Visit http://vivalas.blogspot.com/ to check it out.

I hope you are inspired and join us in our challenge drills this month!!  There is a great Spring mood board up right now!!

April Basic Training - Ink Splats for Backgrounds

April showers bring May flowers and this months basic training... Michele here to share a super quick and fun technique with inks.


I used mostly inks but you can also use high flow acrylic paints or fluid acrylics mixed with water.  You will als need a spray bottle with water and a piece of watercolor paper.


Spray you paper with a generous amount of water.


Splatt your inks randomly arond the page.  For the paints you will have to add more water to get a good spread.


Be careful not to layer too many colors on top of each other, you may get mud pies on your page.  :)


I dried with my heat gun to set the color.


I cut my sheet into 2 tag bases for future use.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you are inspired to try this fun background technique. Thanks to Limor Webber for the inspiration.

If you would like to see what these bases ended up as please visit me over at Art Anthology on April 13th.
